Manchester United transfer news: Italian side warming to the idea of offloading attacking talent

According to transfer expert David Amoyal, Lazio are warming to the idea of cashing in on Manchester United target Felipe Anderson.

The Red Devils considered a move for the Brazilian attacker during the summer, but were unable to reach an agreement with the Roma heavyweights, who saw Anderson as a big part of their season.

Since then, United’s desire to work out a deal has been matched by Lazio’s increasingly openness to offload one of their big names should the Red Devils make an appropriate offer.

According to Amoyal, writing for ESPN, Lazio’s failure to make the Champions League, coupled with the emergence of viable alternatives to Anderson—the likes of Keita Balde, Antonio Candreva, Ricardo Kishnar and former United starlet Ravel Morrison—means that Lazio would sell for the right price.

Amoyal reckons that the Red Devils, for whom Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial have struggled to convince, have a 25 percent chance of signing the attacker during the January transfer window.
